I had the fortunate opportunity to meet this highly qualified master stylist around 12 years ago and I am beyond grateful for that first experience! Vera not only creates beautiful looks based on individual wants and needs but also sincerely cares about her clients. She is a genuine stylist who will go well above and beyond to ensure that you feel as beautiful as she knows that you are. She's the best for any and all beauty needs!

I've typically changed stylists after 3-4 years, either because I either felt the styles looked the same after a while, or they didn't listen to what I wanted. Not so with Vera - I've probably been with her for 10 years or so and have followed her to 3 locations! She is so creative with both style & color, I never get tired of the looks she comes up with. And that can be difficult when your hair is short! I continually get compliments on my hair and it's always easy to take care of. On top of all that, she makes you feel as if you're her most special client. She is warm & cheerful and brightens my day when I go in. Terry M

I was very fortunate to find Vera a few years ago. She is professional, knowledgeable, fun and sweet. I love changing my appearance, and Vera always comes up with the best ideas for me. She always remembers what I like and dislike and is always honest if a certain look would not work for me. She is the best!
